We still get a lot of questions from players wanting more suggestions for their Poker Rooms and or Man Caves, so even though we have written about this in the past, here are a few ideas  for you.

The private Man Caves we have had the privilege of being invited to range from tiny rooms to large open spaces that could fit several poker tables as well as maybe a craps table, a pool table, and even a full bar. Therefore, rather than dictate the perfect design for yours,  we’ll just give you a few insights as to how to furnish your perfect man cave.

First and foremost for any poker-themed room would, of course, be the perfect table, and that would obviously depend on your budget. So, we’ll begin today with some ideas for a medium- budget room:

The Ultimate Poker TableThe Ultimate Poker Table is most deserving of its name for anybody on a budget. It’s a beautiful 10-player positions table with 3″ stainless steel cup holders. Unlike your lesser grade folding leg tables, this folding leg table features a  steel welded frame that will support up to 200 lbs. So even if some of your players get a little out of hand, go on tilt and bounce off the table, it will take most, if not all of their abuse. And if someone gets careless and spills a drink, you have nothing to worry about. The surface is completely removable, so you can easily resurface and upgrade the felt. All that, and it is delivered to your front door at $729.00.

Our Lumen HD Poker TableThe Lumen HD Poker Table, priced at just under $2000, is a kidney-bean shaped table measuring 101.5in x 46in x 30.5in (armrest) / 28in (playing surface) with 11 positions (10 players + a dealer). It has integrated LED lighting, optional cup holders, optional chip tray and optional drop box as well optional built in USB Ports with Solid wood Black or Mahogany Napa Pedestal Legs, and can be fully customized with your own graphics. The Lumen HD is a casino quality poker table that will stand up to 24/7 play and countless compliments.  Great table, perfect for that medium-end budget.

1000 count Claysmith Desert Heat chip setThen, of course, you’ll need some poker chips. The perfect set for this set-up,  the 1000 count Claysmith “Desert Heat” chip set in an acrylic carrying case, comes in at just slightly more than $200.00.

You can then decorate your room, again depending on your budget, with a large screen TV, maybe a few poker signs, a cool sound system to play your favorite tunes, a bar with a mini fridge, and you’re ready to host some friendly poker games.

Poker games and poker tournaments can be found almost anywhere in the world, and even if you go to some remote island on vacation, the hotel is likely to have an internet connection and you can log in to your favorite online casino and play to your heart’s content.  Or at the very least, you can play for as long as you can afford to.

When your opponents, family or friends see you doing this, their immediate thoughts are that you are a poker fanatic. These are the top ten signs that they are right:

  1. If you witness something bad happening your first thought is “That’s a bad beat.”
  2. You claim that you know exactly what cards every player has, even when you’re not in the game.
  3. When you count, you always follow “8, 9, 10” with “Jack, Queen, King, Ace.”
  4. Every person that beats you, pisses you off, or just irritates you, and they are just “donkeys” to you.
  5. If you could, you would celebrate your wedding anniversary by watching a poker tournament on TV.
  6. When booking any hotel room you make sure they have a computer connected to the Internet. That way you can still play online while everyone else goes to the beach.
  7. You can’t help yourself; when you pay for anything you stack up your cash in neat little piles before pushing them to the teller.
  8. You always think you’re the best poker player at any poker table.
  9. When you lose you can’t accept it graciously and always go on “Tilt”
  10. Whenever you lose a hand, you’ll make statements like “I’m just setting traps,” “I knew exactly what he had.”

There are probably many more clear signs that tell everybody just how big of a poker fiend you really are. You’re welcome to send us any that you can come up with, just send them to us by clicking on the link below.

Last year about this same time we had several people who wanted to know our opinion on the right poker table they should get. Some of them wanted something that they could easily store away when not in use, while others wanted to set up their man cave with just the right table or tables for their in home tournaments. Our answers were simple and here they are revisited for all of you who have recently posed the same questions to us.

There are various kinds of poker tables available in the market and choosing the right poker table for your game room is important. There are folding poker tables that are excellent for the casual home or office games, and there is a variety of table tops that are easy to store away in your closet or take with you on trips. And, of course, there are the professional poker tables that would fit in the best game room in your house, office, ManCave, or poker room.

First thing you need to decide is what kind of table you want. Choose our Aces Pro Poker Table, a 96 inch portable table (pictured above) that you can fold up and store or carry away or a permanent piece of furniture like our 101.5 inch Lumen Poker table (pictured below). You can also choose from standard casino style tables to octagonal folding tables or table tops and with different color felts, with the most popular being green – but they also come in red, black or blue felts to complement your décor. If you take your game seriously then your poker table needs to be a comfortable place for your friends to gather and play for hours. Choose wisely and have fun. And don’t forget, all our tables can be customized with your logo, name, or just about any graphic you would like.

The Lumen Poker Table

We have a lot of great tables to choose from, as well as tons of other poker supplies, make sure to look around the store and call or email us if you need more information about any of the products we carry.
